|Beautfort's new bowtie. Quite a dapper fellow.|
I've been thinking a lot about this blog and what things I would like to share this year.
- We have a very exciting demolition and remodel coming up very shortly. Or at least very exciting for me but I'm hoping to will enjoy it as well :)
Want a clue? Here is one of my inspiration photos:
- The kitchen is starting to show it's wear and tear and needs simply a new coat of paint on the walls and cabinets. Still deciding on colors but hope to tackle it soon.
- The kitchen also got a new piece of furniture which has drastically changed the way we use the space. Still waiting on a last piece for it, then I promise to share.
- Speaking of wear and tear, my trusty magic eraser is no longer cutting it. The risers need a new coat of paint and this time I'm going to keep going and paint the whole railing as well. I foresee this being quite a job but I think it will really brighten up the space.
That's it for now. An ambitious list when you both work full time but doable nonetheless. Come spring, I'm sure I'll have new projects to tag on to the list!
As for the blog itself, my friend Kim did a beautiful redesign for me and I've not been the best at its upkeep. My House Tour page is embarrassingly outdated and poor little Beaufort has his own page without one photo of his sweet face. My resolution is to spend some time bring it up to date.
Speaking of Kim, she recently opened an Etsy shop called Little Lovely Details with her own custom digital art prints. In fact, I was the lucky recipient of this one made especially for me, inspired by a photo I shared of Beaufort in front of the Christmas tree. How lucky am I? I will most certainly cherish it!
You can win a very special print of your own by visiting Rachel Peters Photography and sharing the moment of 2012 you are most grateful for. Go on now.. it's simple!
One more day off before I head back to work. I planned to take the tree and decorations down today but woke up with a terrible sore neck and back. I decided to give up wheat for the month of January and it seems somewhat ironic, that the very day I am to start, I sit here with a warm wheat bag around my neck. It's aroma silently teasing me.
I guess I'll have these little reminders of Christmas around for a couple more days.
Happy New Year!
